The Southeastern Railway Museum has been challenged by The 2492 Fund , a private Family Foundation based in Atlanta, GA to raise $5,000 for the Miniature Train/Park Train Project by June 1 st. For every dollar raised in support of the Park Train Project between February 24 and June 1, 2010, The 2492 Fund will match that amount dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000 .
This is an opportunity for the museum to raise a significant amount of the remaining funding needed to complete the Phase #1 track layout. Phase 1 is budgeted at $65,000 of which the museum has already raised over $35,000. The $10,000 represented by this challenge moves the museum steadily forward.
However, in order to claim the entire $5,000 challenge grant, the Southeastern Railway Museum has to come up with $5,000 in matching donations by June 1 st.
As of March 7, museum members and volunteers have pledged or donated over 30% of this challenge. Will you join us to meet the challenge?
If you feel strongly about helping to bring a 1950s-era Miniature Train Company, 16" Gauge (G16) train set back into service, or if you would just enjoy having a working Park Train at the Southeastern Railway Museum, then you need to participate. No gift is too small. If you are unable to make a donation please help by spreading the word!
